How Far is Tattoo far is an American reality show hosted by Nico Tortorella of the Younger fame and Nicole Polizzi of Jersey Shore fame. It is the American version of the UK show Just Tattoo Us. Every episode of the show features couples, friends or families putting their trust and faith in each other by choosing or designing a tattoo for the other person.

How Far is Tattoo Far Plot: What is it about?
The show features two contestants in every episode who may be friends, family or a couple who puts their relationship to an ultimate test. The contestants either chose or help design the tattoos that will be etched on to their companion’s body permanently without them knowing what it is. When both of the contestants are done choosing the tattoo, they then head to get inked. They are not allowed even a single peak at what has been inked. In the end, the tattoos are revealed to contestants — and to audiences. Suffice to say, it is the most dramatic moment in the show.
There have been moments on the show when the tattoo does not sit well with the recipient, and things get ugly really fast. There also have been times when the results were so bad that fights turned physical. During an an episode the reveal resulted in an instant breakup when the girlfriend decided to dump her guy by getting a “dumped” tattooed on his body with a big yellow dumpster to accompany the word.
There have been many speculations about the tattoo being real or if they are just faked for the sake of entertainment. Many contestants have shared in interviews that the tattoo is very real and permanent. Even the show’s hosts have gone on record to confirm that the tattoos are indeed real. When asked the hosts about their experience on the show, they said, “We’re really highly emotional. We cried as much as the clients did. We cried every episode.” Snooki added, “It was so much emotion. It would be like so happy and beautiful to like, ‘Oh my God, how could they do that to each other?’ It was like a roller coaster of emotions.”
